Tax Burden Compared to Poverty Rate in USA by State (2008)


I recently did another study on the comparison between the tax burden and the poverty rate in the USA by state for the year 2008. What most people would think is that higher taxes would mean higher poverty, well that’s wrong, here’s my data. When I did the research the results gave a different answer, the Pearson Coefficient gave -0.22166… If taxes caused higher poverty rates the result of the Pearson Coefficient would be positive(+), but the result was negative(-), which suggests that higher taxes are related to lower poverty. If you have evidence against my data, please post it in the comments below.
